Disney has announced Disney+ Day, a special day to make two years of the streaming service.
A number of blockbuster films and series will make their debut on Disney+ on that day, including the recently released Marvel blockbuster, Shang-Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings.
But what else is coming to Disney+ as part of the special day, and when is it?
Here is everything you need to know about it.
What is happening on Disney+ Day?
Marvel blockbuster Shang-Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings will make its streaming debut as part of Disney+ Day.
The film, which stars Simu Liu and Awkwafina, made a big splash at the box office following its release in August.
It has grossed 322 million dollars (£236 million) worldwide, an impressive total in the pandemic era.
Family adventure Jungle Cruise, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, will also be available to mark Disney+ Day, it was announced.
And Home Sweet Home Alone, a reimagining of the beloved Christmas franchise, will be another addition, Disney said.
Other releases include; Pixar animated short film Ciao Alberto, featuring characters from summer movie Luca; the first five episodes from season two of The World According To Jeff Goldblum; and Dopesick, an original series starring Michael Keaton.
What is Shang-Chi And The Legend of The Ten Rings?
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was released in UK cinemas in September, and received glowing reviews.
It stars Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, a character previously known for his days in the comic books as the Master of Kung Fu.
Critical reactions praised the film as “fantastic”, “phenomenal”, “astounding”, and even a game-changer.
Collider’s Steven Weintraub said that Shang-Chi stood out from the many other Marvel movies, and praised the casting of Simu Liu in particular.
ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis wrote that Shang-Chi was surprisingly dark, and that appropriately for a film about a martial arts master the action was unlike anything we’ve seen from Marvel so far.
We Live Entertainment’s Scott Menzel named Shang-Chi as the best superhero film of 2021 over the likes of Black Widow and The Suicide Squad.
When is Disney+ Day?
The event will take place on Friday 12 November, to mark the two-year anniversary of the streaming service.
Disney+ was launched as a rival to Netflix and has 116 million subscribers, compared to the 209 million of its chief competitor.
